Monthly Mixtape: Powder Room and Power Chord

AUGUST. I mean, August! I mean, August. I mean, AUGUST. I’ve been wanting to make you this mixtape foreeeeeverrrrr.

(minus two sorely-missed faces.) I also […]

Lights..! Camera..! Favorite mixtape ever..! (p.s. That’s an old school movie projector toy in Will’s hand. He wasn’t wanting to be my director, though, so- no milk for him!) MOVIES. Favorite thing ever. They take us away to another place, another time, another era, another land. For roughly 90 minutes, we get to experience life […]

Monthly Mixtape: Embers and Ashes

Noveeeeeemmmmberrrrrrrr. HOW? How. I trust you’re all surviving your candy coma? How did last night go? Are you sleeping in? Spazzing out? Both? Neither? Leave you alone? The gremlins went as Mary Poppins and Bert, as it’s been my life for the last two years. They are OBSESSED with the movie. Certifiably loony for it. […]

Monthly Mixtape: All the Vibes

Well would you look at that – it’s AUGUST. (!) How did we get here?! Besides the whole space time continuum thing. Okay, I’m changing it up a little this month! First of all, it’s my birthday month. Not only that, it’s a milestone birthday. I’m turning 40. (FORTY.) But isn’t 40 the new 20? […]
